The Datejust

The classic watch of reference

Introducing the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31

Rolex presents four white Rolesor versions (combining Oystersteel and white gold) of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31. The first watch, featuring a bezel set with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds, has an aubergine, sunray-finish dial that is adorned with a diamond-set Roman VI. The three other versions are fitted respectively with a mint green, sunray-finish dial, white lacquer dial, or dark grey, sunray-finish dial, and a fluted bezel in white gold. The hands and index hour markers or Roman numerals on all four watches are in white gold. The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the elegant profile of the 31 mm Oyster case.

Timeless style

Rolex’s Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion. Launched in 1945, it was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial, and consolidated all the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatch until then.

Features of the Datejust

The Datejust has spanned eras while retaining the enduring aesthetic ­ that make it so instantly recognizable.

According to its size, the Datejust is equipped with calibre 2236 (Datejust 31) or calibre 3235 (Datejust 36 and Datejust 41), which are self-winding mechanical movements entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Their architecture, manufacturing and innovative features make them exceptionally precise and reliable.

Calibres 2236 and 3235 are new-generation movements that offer fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability.
